Debian Security Advisory 1362-2 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Steve Kemp
October 7th, 2007 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : lighttpd
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem type : repmote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2007-4727


A problem was discovered in lighttpd, a fast webserver with minimal memory
footprint, which could allow the execution of arbitary code via the
overflow of CGI variables when mod_fcgi was enabled.

This updated advisory correctly patches the security issue, which was
not handled in DSA-1362-1.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
1.4.13-4etch4.

We recommend that you upgrade your lighttpd package.


Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url

apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
